Canolfan Peniarth have published two story books by Dr Mererid Hopwood, on two famous characters from Wales from the Middle Ages.

The book on Princess Nest takes a look at the life of the Welsh Princess in the Middle Ages, a very troubled period in Wales, while the book on Hopcyn ap Tomos follows the story of creating the famous Llyfr Coch Hergest.

Both books are educational story books for Key Stage 2 children, and are part of the series Travelling back to the Middle Ages’, that Peniarth will publish in September.  In addition to these two books, the series will include activity cards, a teachers guide, as well as online resources that will be available on the Welsh Government’s Hwb website.

More information on the series will be available on Canolfan Peniarth’s website soon; www.peniarth.cymru
